Saisons were originally brewed to keep farmhands happy and hydrated during the warm summer months. True to the style, Yards’ Saison is a semi-unfiltered Belgian style ale brewed with distinctive Belgian yeast. It’s delicate and fruity with a subtle spiciness. Styrian Goldings in the kettle lend a touch of hop to the palate, balancing out this highly drinkable version of the classic style. Available April through July or until supplies last.

NikkTwist (2048) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 23, 2013
UPDATED: MAY 8, 2015 Draft at Moriartys. May 2013. Pint. Hazy hay pour with soft white foam. Wet lace. Feels a bit like a medium dark wheat beer with some earthy notes. Not a traditional Saison but has some interesting flavors. Oranges spiked with cloves. Bread dough. Truffles. Apricots. Sage. Mushrooms. Rosemary. Dry up front. Sweet in the middle. Balanced in the finish. Unusual. UPDATE: Having again at Moriartys in May 2015. Not sure if this is because I just had a couple high-hopped IPAs immediately prior but the Saison tastes undrinkably sweet to me.

ben4321 (4832) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2013

Aroma: The nose has Belgiany-type yeast, pepper/spice, some citrus rind, and light funk

Flavor: The flavor is medium sweet and plenty spicy, with a light funk, and mild bitterness
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a lively carbonation, and a dry, spicy finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a pretty solid beer. It has a pretty nice nose/flavor, a solid feel, and a nice drinkability. It isn’t an exceptional beer, but it is plenty tasty.

kramer (5395) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2013
Tap. Pours a slightly hazy dark gold body with a rather large frothy white head that had excellent retention, falling to a creamy mass. The nose is fairly light, and not especially Saison like. Smells rather hard with a fairly heavy pale maltiness. There’s minimal yeast influence and no real rustic farmhouse character. A little bit of light spicing, but it doesn’t seem like its from the yeast. The flavor is like the aroma, I wouldn’t really guess this was a Saison, more of a generic Belgian Ale. Light spice up front followed by a slightly sweet and heavy pale malt towards the back end. A little lingering spice and maybe a touch of yeast character. Medium bodied, a little heavy and thick with soft fizzy carbonation. Not a bad beer on its own, but not anything like what I want from a Saison.

Great summer ale. Blazing heat is this beer’s best friend. Has a nice wheat/straw nose and lots of great sour grass flavors. love this beer.
